It is my pleasure to inform you of your acceptance to the University of Dallas.
Dear 16 year old me,
This letter will transform your life in ways that you cannot even begin to imagine.
Congratulations and welcome to our community of scholars!
You are excited. Maybe even overjoyed. But you have no idea what's in store!
After careful review, the Admission Committee has approved your application for admission for the fall semester...
The people you'll meet, the experiences you'll have will not change you. They will reveal you. Reveal the real you who you've yet to meet...
We believe the academic records and personal characteristics presented in your application reflect qualities which will enable you to become a successful part of the University of Dallas class of 2001.
You are too young. You are not ready. But that's okay. The Lord has softened harder hearts. He has worked bigger miracles than the one He is about to work in you.
You will be joining a vibrant academic community...
So brace yourself...
We look forward to having you as a member of the class of 2001!
Your most incredible journey starts now!
R. Fred Zuker
Dean of Admission and Financial Aid
With all my love,
